“When we had children we decided that the wages and pension provided by my wife’s job were needed more than mine so I opted to stay at home and look after the kids and I suppose become a house husband…. A bit of a role reversal! My wife had an affair and left the family home. I had no income and after 15yrs out of the job market effectively no future career to support myself and the kids. All I can say is Margaret was fantastic and we resolved all the financial issues through the courts. I would highly recommend Margaret to anyone who is in a similar situation.“

In 1977, Margaret qualified from Victoria University, Manchester with a Bachelor of Laws Honours Degree. She started her own general practice in January 1981, but her success and reputation in matrimonial areas led her over time to specialise solely in this area.

For the past 30 years, Margaret has developed a solid reputation locally and nationally, dealing with high worth financial issues and high court rulings relating to child care matters.

Margaret is a member of Resolution, previously the Solicitors' Family Law Association. Resolution members are family lawyers committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes. All members follow a Code of Practice that promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems. All members encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family, and in particular, the best interests of children.
